Tip & How-To about Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera

Copy Pictures From INTERNAL MEMORY to Memory Card (solution for those who have no USB cable)

Required:
Samsung D53 Camera
Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!)
Fresh batteries

Optional:
Computer
Memory card reader on your computer

Problem:
You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.

Solution:
I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.

Here are the steps I followed:

1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.

2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.

3. Power camera on.

4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.

5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.

6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".

7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.

(Optional)
8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.

9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)

software for my samsung digimax d53 camera is incompatable with windows 7


You don't need the Samsung software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Consider getting a card reader instead.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".
